HTML_QuickForm_Renderer_Tableless is a replacement of the default renderer of HTML_QuickForm. It has two main goals:

$renderer =& new HTML_QuickForm_Renderer_Tableless();

// usual code, e.g. new form fields, rules, ...

echo $renderer->toHtml();

For full XHTML validity, you need to add the following line to your code:
